Oil and Gas Forms

EGLE, OGMD has implemented electronic document management practices and strives to operate in a paperless environment. Accordingly, forms and reporting can now be electronically completed and submitted. Operators must ensure that all forms and reports are accurately completed and submitted on time in accordance with all applicable regulations. EGLE, OGMD reviews the submitted forms and reports for compliance and when necessary, will notify operators of required revisions. Although many of the forms may be submitted by email to a specified email address as indicated below, please know that most of the required injection and production reporting is now accomplished exclusively through the Michigan's State Tracking and Reporting System (MiSTAR). The use of MiSTAR for reporting as specified below is now mandatory for operators in Michigan. EGLE, OGMD has created detailed guides for using MiSTAR which are available for downloading from our website.
